Spicy Peach-Corn Salsa

Posted by

This salsa came as an aside to the Chili Parm Grilled Corn I posted the other day. It was two days later, I had two more ears of corn and viola!, with a few other ingredients in the fridge, a salsa was born! I tend to be a traditionalist when it comes to salsa–tomatoes, onions, something spicy, herbs, thank you very much. But if Como Water has taught me anything, it’s that some of the best dishes are born out of reaching beyond your comfort zone. Sometimes it doesn’t work out. And sometimes, like in the case of this spicy-sweet salsa, it does! 😀

  8. What an interesting salsa! Looks delicious!

  9. I feel the same way! But the more I play around with ingredients and recipes the more I learn to trust my own instincts in the kitchen!

  10. Peach and corn? YUM! You always give nice flavor to fresh ingredients. I rather want to eat this salsa over regular kinds. I think I might just scoop up with spoon to eat like salad! 😀 Looks delicious!!! Have a great Labor Day weekend Tiff!

  11. Thanks for the comments everyone! 😀

  12. Looks yummmm! Love the combination of peaches and corn here, and slightly jealous because peaches aren’t available here!

  13. Tiffamy,
    What a delightful array of colors and flavors in your salsa. I have never paired the fruit with corn in salsa, but I will now. Gorgeous pics!
    Congrats on Today’s Top 9!!

  14. Saw this recipe and had to make it. I noticed the recipe doesn’t call for onion (but it looked like there were some in the pictures) so I added 1 diced small red onion. Took my first bite and my first thought was “Are you kidding me? Why haven’t I been making this all summer!” It is absolutely delicious!! Thanks for sharing!

    • Yah! Thanks for the comment Andrea! I’m so glad you liked it! And yes, it does have onion! I forgot to put that in the recipe. Adding it now. THANKS!
